Moses: Allow it.
Wes Anderson is not a man to be taken lightly. I must admit I only rented this film because he was the director and boy did I make a good decision. Needless to say I’ve seen a large quantity of movies and you rarely see anything new, but The Royal Tenenbaums is unlike anything I have ever seen. I really want to tell you what this movie is about but honestly I have no idea where to start. Make sure you have your ticket ready, this is going to be one hell of a ride.
There is a quirky family with 3 child prodigies. (Richie, Marogot, and Chad Tenenbaum)
The child prodigies grow up and become estranged with their father. (Royal)

The family tries to connect. (The Tenenbaums)
Tennis Announcer 1: That’s 72 unforced errors for Richie Tenebaum. He’s playing the worst tennis of his life. What’s he feeling right now?
Tennis Announcer 2: I don’t know, Jim. There’s obviously something wrong with him. He’s taken off his shoes and one of his socks and… actually, I think he’s crying.
You know what sucks, movies that suck. You know what does not suck, movies that are awesome. Fortunately enough for us this cinematic adventure falls into the latter. The Darjeeling Limited is probably one of the quirkiest movies I’ve ever seen (scene) and I mean that in the best way possible. Wes Anderson (director) is really a mastermind when it comes to family dramadies and he does not disappoint. Punch your ticket and let’s see why this train ride is worth your money.
